In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


White House walks back promise to reopen schools by redefining reopened schools

In December, Joe Biden said this:

“If states and cities put strong public health measures in place that we all follow, then my team will work to see that the majority of our schools can be open by the end of my first 100 days.”

You thought that meant to actually open schools, right? Well, this is now what opening schools means, according to White House Press secretary Jen Psaki, who said this Tuesday:

“His goal that he set is to have the majority of schools—so more than 50 percent—open by day 100 of his presidency, and that means some teaching in classrooms. Teaching at least one day a week in the majority of schools by day 100.”

Because that’s how Washington rolls. Reminds me of lawmakers who love to say something is “bipartisan” if it gets the vote of ONE person from the other party.

  1. I read that 2/3 of public schools are open today at least two days a week . . . meaning they have already met the metric the administration is setting for 3 months from now.

    So, Biden’s goal is to move backwards?

    1. Mr Pibb, Joe and the Democrat’s plan is to take the country backwards! The teachers union is powerful due to their skill set. Unlike some other unions, which can bring in replacements whether union or non-union workers, you can’t just bring in anyone to teach/ deal with kids!

      Texas is back to school. Some hiccups of course, but things are headed in right direction. Kids that decide to stay at home aren’t learning!

      1. Indeed. I live in Los Angeles and the teachers’ union here has no interest in returning to the classroom without leveraging a laundry list of demands, most of which have nothing to do with health and safety, “science” or the good of the children.
